Electronic Theses & Dissertations
The Colorado State University Libraries and the Graduate School have developed a submission, approval, and archival process for electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) at Colorado State University.
Beginning January 1, 2011 all theses and dissertations are required to be submitted electronically to ProQuest/UMI. Your work will be available through ProQuest/UMI’s Digital Dissertations & Theses database and the CSU Digital Repository, an open access showcase of campus research and scholarship.

What is an ETD & how does having my work online benefit me?
An ETD is an electronic version of a thesis or dissertation.It is formatted just like a traditional thesis or dissertation (with pagination, tables, figures, references, etc.), but is saved as a PDF file and submitted electronically to the university instead of printed on paper. Once approved, your thesis or dissertation will be archived, stored, and made available via the CSU Digital Repository and ProQuest/UMI's Digital Dissertations & Theses database.
An ETD makes your research immediately accessible to a broad audience, while reducing both printing/binding costs for you and processing/storage costs for the university. The electronic format is more readily searchable than a print document, and can incorporate added features such as color, multimedia, and supplemental files. Through the electronic preparation and submission process, you will also gain experience in intellectual property issues and electronic document preparation that will be useful in your future academic or professional pursuits.
